Hey there!

November 1st. Surgery day. My dooms day.

I couldn’t sleep last night, kept thinking through things. One thing I thought about was, wether we die young, or live to be 102, life is short. Too short to be fearful to take risks, ask for what you want or worry about what people think. Random late night sleepless thought.

Pulled up at the Women’s Centre at the Vancouver Hospital.

I was headed to floor 6.

The surgery was crappy. I’m not going to pretend it was hunky dory, cause it was shitty. Even though I am tough and can make it through anything- I don’t wish that upon anyone. My Leep procedure is done, and now any potential cancerous cells are gone from my body. Mike was holding my hand the whole time, and the doctor and nurses were very kind. I am very tired and out of it right now, so perhaps we can expand on it more at a later date. But again, my plea is that you get a yearly pap done. Cervix cancer can be detected well in advance if you get your yearly checkup.

After the surgery, the nurse said to eat right away and don’t count calories! lol

Mike and I met our friends Eden and Colin for lunch at Organic Lives.

We sat down right before the lunch rush, this place did get BIZY!

I got the Sicilian Wrap with a ceaser salad. Ah-maze-ing!

For dessert Mike and I shared the “ridiculous” (that’s really it’s name!) And Colin and Eden shared the “OMG” (yup, that’s it’s name too)

Since I’ve been home I have travelled back and forth from the bed to the couch. This little hellion angel knows when it’s time to pour on his sweetness when I just need some comfort and cuddles.

Here’s my station today… In between watching some Dog Whisperer re-runs. lol

Going to bed now! Tomorrow is a new day. Love and light!

    Hope you start to feel better soon. You are entirely too right about life being too short and I came to that realization about 7 years ago when my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer that she fought for two long years and pulled through. Changed my entirely perception on life and what really matters to me most.

    Enjoy your cuddles and take care!

      Wow, good for your mom! As shitty as it is we go through these things, they do open our eyes. I appreciate your kind words. Have a wonderful weekend Lindsay:)
